Located just a drive away from the famous wineries of the Sonoma Country, Healdsburg often attracts wine lovers from different parts of the world. However, COVID-19 lockdown has forced them to cancel all their travel plans. But as the world is gradually opening up again to resume tourism, the hospitality industry has also pulled up its socks and is taking every precautionary measure to welcome back guests in a safe and healthy environment.  

Northern California however, is not new to such social distancing measures. Even the Casa Madrona Hotel in Sausalito uses drones to deliver wines straight to the room window.

Moreover, even the aviation sector has amped up its safety measures, to ensure in-flight social distancing, hygiene and more
